[SOLVED] File statistics in a amper-variable
Can I get the output to ? FILE filename into a variable? I'm need to find the last update time to be displayed on a report.

Hi Les,
One possibility(I'm sure there are others):

Try APP QUERY and do a -READ or -READFILE on the HOLD:
  
APP QUERY ibisamp HOLD
-RUN
TABLEF FILE FOCAPPQ
PRINT * 
 WHERE FILENAME LIKE '%.foc';
  ON TABLE HOLD FORMAT ALPHA
END
-RUN
?FF HOLD
-EXIT

Probably have to change the Date and Time formats...

This is a bit excessive, and uses a remote call to the loopback node of the reporting server, as well as the EMGSRV setting to route output to a file, but seems to work.

SET EMGSRV = FILE
-RUN
REMOTE DEST = LOOPBACK

-REMOTE BEGIN

? FILE CAR

-REMOTE END

-RUN
SET EMGSRV = ON
-RUN

EX -LINES * EDAPUT MASTER,EMGFILE,CV,FILE
FILENAME=EMGFILE, SUFFIX=FIX,$
SEGNAME=EMGFILE, $
  FIELD=LINE ,ALIAS=  ,A255 ,A255 ,$
EDAPUT*

-RUN

TABLE FILE EMGFILE
PRINT *
END

Sorry Waz, you did not win this time. Tom's was much simpler.

Well Lee, it is how someone interprets the question.

Tom's will give you the last change date of the file.

If thats all you need, then yes its the easiest way.

If you need to know the last update of each segment in the FOCUS file, then this will help.

Good One Tom
